#MeToo galvanized Hollywood, rocked the media, roused academia and has now electrified politics. Women’s rights are front and center and have experienced significant blows and continual onslaughts. Women have been marginalized and silenced from the highest levels of government…the government that supposed to protect them. Women are saying no more and bringing #MeToo to the polls.
Join the conversation as Women’s March LA brings this panel of powerful women discuss taking action in this political climate and bringing the #MeToo movement to the polls. Barbara Lee Family Foundation reports 37% of women, 42% of unmarried women, 50% of millennial women, and 40% of African Americans say current events regarding sexual harassment make them more likely to vote for women candidates or candidates that see sexual harassment as a voting issue.
